About Me

Great scientists aren't always great communicators—and they shouldn't have to be. I specialize in science communication, connecting cutting edge research to a broad audience through a variety of media: writing, video, social media, data visualization, photography, and more.

My current work for the Long-Term Ecological Research Network highlights ecology research across the world. On any given day, I'm plugged in to soil biogeochemistry in Antarctica, urban forestry in Baltimore, or kelp forest community structure in Santa Barbara.

I moonlight as a semi-professional climbing, surfing, and lifestyle photographer—and jump at the chance to incorporate photography into all my science communication projects.

And I'm always open to work. I love connecting with new researchers and taking on projects that bring me far beyond my current world. Reach out to see how I can help—excited to get started!
